Our Biodiversity swim & sun collection brings attention to the rich variety of animal and plant life whose irreplaceable homes are threatened by humans’ actions around the world. 

Our Biodiversity Prints

Panther Chameleon

The panther chameleon, or Furcifer pardalis, gets its name from the latin word for "leopard" or "spotted like a panther," in reference to its unique markings.

The panther chameleon calls the island nation of Madagascar its home. Due to its geographic isolation, Madagascar provides the sole habitat for 90% of the plant and animal life living there.

The panther chameleon print is available in the eco snap swim diaper and easy-change eco trunks.

Did you know?

Biodiversity hotspots are regions that support a variety of animals and life-giving plants & whose survival has been threatened by human intervention.

Chilenito Cactus Flower

The "Chilenito" cactus flower gets its nickname from its home on the western shore of Chile. Some varieties have pink blossoms, while others have yellow. 

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the Chilenito is one of "world's 100 most threatened species," mostly due to its limited habitat and "illegal overcollection" as a decorative plant.

The Chilenito cactus flower print is available on the eco-snap swim diaper.

Hawksbill Turtle

The hawksbill sea turtle, named for its distinctive pointed beak, can be found in three particularly vibrant biodiversity hotspots: the Mesoamerican Reef, Coastal East Africa, and the Coral Triangle in the western Pacific Ocean.

Hawksbills are considered critically endangered, with the biggest threat they face coming from the illegal wildlife trade. Their protection is essential to preserving our coral reefs.

The hawksbill turtle print is available in the eco-snap swim diaper, easy-change eco swimsuit, and easy-change eco trunks.

Amazon River Dolphin

The Amazon river dolphin, also known as the boto or pink river dolphin, are freshwater mammals that start out gray and acquire their unique pink hue in adulthood.

Although Amazon river dolphins are relatively plentiful, they are considered endangered as pollution, climate change, habitat destruction, and fishing-related injuries threaten the survival of their species as well as the hotspots they call home.

The Amazon river dolphin print is available in the eco-snap swim diaper and the easy-change eco swimsuit.

Biodiversity Hotspot Inhabitants

Biodiversity hotspots provide the sole habitat for 60% of all plant, mammal, reptile, bird, and amphibian species on Earth. 

Mandarin Fish

The mandarin fish or mandarin dragonet is native to the Pacific Ocean between Japan's Ryukyu Islands and the Australian coast.

The mandarin fish's large fins are used to "walk" along the ocean floor and on the coral reefs. They commonly feed on small crustaceans, though in some cases can become accustomed to aquarium fish food.

The mandarin fish print is available in the eco-snap swim diaper and easy-change eco trunks.

Himalayan Monal

The Himalayan monal is a rather hefty pheasant that lives in Himalayan forests and shrublands and is the national bird of Nepal.

Though not considered endangered, the Himalayan monal is threatened in some areas by destruction of habitat and poaching, the latter due to its striking appearance's value in conveying authority.

The Himalayan Monal print is available in the eco-snap swim diaper and easy-change eco trunks.

Why we've focused on biodiversity in 2023
